The coolest RCB updates, served hot.

India’s woes continue

Two heavy defeats in three matches. The first was a margin of 200 runs, the second, today, got over within 15 overs. The consistency at which the Indian team is playing inconsistent cricket in Sri Lanka is somehow slowly getting into the system as a habit, even if the team make us believe anything otherwise. The Indian batting order would come up with a stellar one match only to deceive in the next. Like they did today, succumbing by 103. Sri Lanka took just 15 overs to overcome the challenge, and the whole day-and-night affair was over in less than 50 overs. Not exactly a perfect example of good cricket, isn’t it!

Blame it wholly on the Indian batsmen. Except for Sehwag and Yuvraj, who is making a comeback into competitive cricket, the others dwindled like a pack or cards. There wasn’t much of a devil in the wicket, but the Indians forced themselves into the devils’ door with their lackadaisical uninspiring approach.

Sri Lanka had to win this match to stay afloat in this tournament, and they did it in style. India now has to win against New Zealand in the last league match to fancy any chances of moving into the finals. The changes in the team composition notwithstanding, changes in the attitude and the will to stay longer in the middle than inside the dressing room, is more desirable for the India team at the moment. The faster they achieve this distinction, the winning consistencies will make a welcome return.
